Best Mahabharata Characters

Mahabharat is an Indian epic and we are talking about the top characters from Mahabharata.
The Top Ten
1 Karna

Karna is a great warrior... karna is a real hero of Mahabharata.. but no one respect his power.. cause everyone knew he is great archer but every one made him down calling chariot's son.. most of all people think Arjun is better than karna but that's not true cause if Arjun was better than karna ... how could he kill karna with adharma? If he was able to kill him .. then he supposed to get him chance to get out his wheel.. or get him chance to hold vijay dhanus in his hand... cause Krishna knew Arjun was not able to kill karna with fair way.. so Krishna told to Arjun this is the right time if you did not kill now then you will not kill ever... the real point is every one did adharma in Mahabharata even lord Krishna ...

2 Krishna

Krishna is perfect in every way!

Krishna should be in first. The comment I wrote for arjun is the same as krishna. and actually krishna is my big brother. Hi bhaiya

The Ultimate Source of Everything,Resides in every particle of Universe. Although rated 2nd here and might be Lord's own choice. ;)
Even warrior Karna was made up of Lord's Blessings.Remember him for the path of progress.

3 Bheeshma

The most virtuous character bound by shackles of promises. Everyone shat on him even though he was the most respected one.

He was the greatest warrior, could have destroyed everyone but restrained his powers.

Greatest warrior and man who keeps his word at whatever cost it takes.

4 Arjun

I never care about anyone saying about him anything. He is the person of which Lord Krishna himself became the chariotter. Doesn't need much more. Better than best.

Arjun was the ultimate enlightened warrior, greatest friend of god himself, and one of the most Sattvic warriors of all time.

Arjuna was the best warrior in the Era , Shiva himself said that and so did Krishna.

5 Duryodhana

Please vote this guy. From the beginning to end everything unjust him.

He is a great warrior. A real 'Kshatriya'
Has the greatest friend with the greatest warrior (Karna)
He is a loyal friend.
He doesn't care about the cast system E. G Karna
Even though is classified as adharma, he is a great king.
Only downfall his hatred over the Pandavas

6 Abhimanyu
7 Shakuni

Good politician and kept word for his forefathers.

8 Bheem

He defeated Karna at least 4 times during the war. Also defeated Drona by breaking his chariot 8 times

9 Eklavya

Just faith and trust for his guru made him the best Archer. And sacrificed everything for the same guru, can let go anything for one he trust.

I am not S.T but he also rocks but yeah I also like karan and krishna but his character also rocks

10 Yudhishthir

He lived for Dharma and got the name and fame as "Dharma Raj". He alone went to the Heaven with the human body at the end.

He is the most righteous person in the Mahabharata.

The Contenders
11 Balram

He was one of the most unbiased people in the story.

12 Ashwatthama

He is a great warrior who replied to the enemies in their code and style. He killed the remaining Pandava Army including cowards like Shikhandi and Dhrishtadyumna very brutally, which was the need of the hour. He was perhaps the best Commander that the Kaurava Army ever had.

I don't understand why he is not in the list. Though he is a bad character, he was a great warrior.

Valiant warrior but only person who dare enough trying to stop disrobing of draupadi in large gathering of so called great persons.

13 Vidur
14 Drona
15 Ghatotkacha
16 Draupadi

She is probably the most pious lady ever existed on earth. Though people had made false stories of her insulting Karna and Duryodhan, but they are all false.

17 Kunti
18 Nakula
19 Parashurama
20 Barbarika

He is innocent, who can stand in the side of loosing and a capable warrior who can end war with just 3 arrows. Got cheated by Krishna, as he had other plans with war

21 Vrishashen
22 Mata Gandhari

She is a Good Mother and Wife in the whole Mahabharata. No one can replace her as a good mother.

23 Pandu
24 Sahadeva
25 Dhritarashtra
